Talks and classes will be at the forefront of this year’s brand-new Health and Wellbeing Festival that will take place at Manchester Central on the 11th and 12th June.
Since lockdown, health and mental wellbeing has been at the forefront of many minds, with people taking up running, walking, yoga and various online fitness classes as a way to cope with the successive lockdowns.
As we come out of COVID, our health and wellbeing is still as imperative as ever as we navigate our way through this ‘new normal’ world. Manchester’s Wellbeing Festival aims to provide guests with help, guidance and support with their health – alongside fun classes and workshops to get involved in.
Highlights of the two-day festival include appearances from Alice Liveing, a personal trainer, Women’s Health columnist and bestselling author who will kickstart each day with a strength workout to get your body moving!
On Sunday Alice interviews special guests about the importance of building mental and physical resilience. Gemma Atkinson will also make an appearance as she shares her fitness advice on how to feel stronger, healthier, more confident and comfortable in your own body.
The festival is aiming to be an uplifting weekend of talks and classes to move your body, stimulate your mind and soothe your soul.
Its experts will share advice on how to improve your mental and physical health, and the fitness classes will offer something for everyone.
Fitness organisations such as BLOK will also host Vinyassa and Barre classes to introduce guests to new ways of working out and there’ll be plenty of plant powered food and drink outlets, too.
Classes must be booked in advance and you’ll receive a link to book your classes one week before the festival. For health and safety reasons mats will not be provided, so you’re advised to bring your own. Talks do not need to be booked.
